Shortcut alert—chorizo is your ticket to a fast-fix dinner thanks to its built-in abundance of spices. In this easy soup, it provides a backbone of flavor without requiring you to raid your spice cabinet. Customize this recipe with your choice of beans—we love creamy pinto, but black beans are equally delicious. Pile a bowl full of your favorite toppings and dive in; it’s much easier to eat than a street taco, and just as delicious! Be sure to buy Mexican chorizo, which is uncooked; Spanish chorizo is cured, so it won’t render the fat you need to cook the onions and chiles.
